If you are looking for a place to stop over with no fanfare, restaurant, bar facilities or fuss, but a safe, value for money, peaceful forest type environment, with very comfortable rooms, superb ablutions, and very warm & friendly service, then look no further, this is the place for you. We stayed there for two nights during August 2014 and... More

Rene and Marie are absolutely fantastic hosts. We always stay here when we're in Maun, which is a relief after years of looking for decent places in town. We were so thankful when they opened up. There are various kinds of rooms at Discovery, including rondavels, and all are nicely maintained, clean, quiet, and comfortable. If you request dinner, what... More

A huge recommendation for Discovery. Beautiful, thoughtfully and creatively designed individual rooms in thatched huts. All mod cons (no internet though - but available close by), great showers, some outside the hut, firm beds and delightful washbasins. Very friendly owner, Maria from Holland, usually full so book ahead. Wonderful.

We stayed here about a month ago, after an amazing BushWays Safari, and prior to leaving the next day for Madagascar. We wish we would have had more time there. It was peaceful, beautiful and relaxing. The breakfast was good and the owners were so accomodating. They responded promptly to all my emails and let us watch the "World cup... More

We enjoyed our stay at Discovery and would recommend it to those staying in Maun. We stayed in one the en suite rondavels. The rondavels have character and are clean, and we felt safe with our car at night since there is a night guard. The owners are very nice and helpful in booking tours. I do recommend having a...

It is amazing what can be fitted into an area without making one feel couped up, even when the place is fully booked. The lovely owners have created a unique B&B. They are welcoming and friendly. Facilities are of rustic-style but they are homely and well equipped. Being a long way out of town means shopping and eating are not... More

This is a brilliant accommodation option, particularly if you have your own vehicle as it is a little way out of Maun. The resident Dutch owners are exceptional hosts and have great experience and understanding about their adopted country. The evenings gathered with other travellers, both new and returning, were brilliant for a solo traveller such as myself. The evocative... More

We stayed at the Discovery B&B before our safari started, arriving a day early in case we missed a connection. The reservation process went smoothly, with great communication with the owners. We asked to be met at the airport and taken to the B&B. Rene, the owner, picked us up and took us to an ATM across from the airport.... More

Very well kept units and grounds. Lovely planted areas, with paths going here and there to swimming pool, reception, evening fire pit, etc. A very peaceful setting.
